Home Composting

Home composting is an economical alternative to throwing yard and food waste into the garbage or hauling it to a transfer station. Composting is a "natural" form of recycling that takes ordinary organic waste and transforms it into a soil amendment that improves the health of plants. In Spokane County there are several ways to make sure your organic material is composted.
